Spike Milligan

(16 April 1918 – 27 February 2002 / Ahmednagar)

Feelings


There must be a wound!
No one can be this hurt
and not bleed.

How could she injure me so?
No marks
No bruise

Worse!
People say 'My, you're looking well'
.....God help me!
She's mummified me -
ALIVE!

    Humour is a great restorative, particularly to something treated so seriously as spurned affection (which I assume is the object of this poem) . (Report) Reply

    The serious side. Yet he can still conclude with something of a laugh. Wonderful. Paul. (Report) Reply

    This poem is really really A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
